More than 40 million adults in the United States battle depression and anxiety every year. That’s over 18% of the total population. With so many people around us dealing with these mental illnesses, it’s important to recognize and understand the signs and symptoms. The sooner you can get treatment for these mental health conditions, the sooner you’ll start to feel like yourself and the closer you will become to living a happy life again.

I know for sure what we dwell on is who we become.” –Oprah Winfrey

If you or a loved one is battling anxiety and/or depression, help is available. Seeking out treatment from a licensed therapist or psychologist can be the boost you need to cope with, manage, and overcome these difficult emotions. At Thriveworks Counseling in Manchester, CT, we have a team of depression and anxiety therapists who are dedicated to helping people just like you reach their goals. There’s no reason you should continue to just “deal with” depression and anxiety. To start making meaningful changes in your life, give us a call. We’d love to help you.

Depression and Anxiety: Symptoms and Presentation

Like we just briefly went over, depression and anxiety are mental health conditions that affect a significant number of people. Unfortunately, depression and anxiety also go hand in hand and have a lot of overlapping symptoms. While you don’t necessarily have anxiety if you have depression and vice versa, it is possible to develop one if you have the other. Some recognizable signs and symptoms include:

  • Depression: low mood, feelings of hopelessness, lack of interest in activities that were once enjoyable, low self-esteem, changes in sleeping or eating patterns, lack of social interaction, thoughts of self-harm or suicide
  • Anxiety: racing thoughts or fear, irritability, fatigue, excessive worry, lack of focus, sleep disturbances
  • Depression and Anxiety: changes in sleeping or eating patterns, irritability, loss of appetite, fatigue, difficulty concentrating

While we did list quite a few of the symptoms, these are not all of them. If you are experiencing anything in the lists above, it might be time for you to reach out and get an accurate diagnosis as well as a personalized treatment plan. As mentioned earlier, a great deal of the population who have anxiety and depression never seek the treatment they need to successfully manage and overcome these mental illnesses. If you want to beat that statistic and overcome the challenges standing in your way, reach out to Thriveworks Counseling in Manchester, CT.

Our goal is to help you establish healthy routines and manageable ways to control your stressors. In summary, your therapist will work with you to…

  • Identify stressors
  • Cope and manage intense feelings and symptoms before they worsen
  • Set goals and achieve them on your own and with support
  • Improve your communication skills
  • Monitor your success and celebrate big and small victories

To achieve these things, your therapist might utilize a variety of therapeutic techniques and methods, including cognitive behavioral therapy, interpersonal therapy, psychodynamic therapy, and management techniques.
